Gain Visibility into Encrypted Traffic to Stop Hidden Threats

The malicious use of encryption is soaring, as encrypted inbound and outbound network traffic accounts for nearly two-thirds of organizations' web connections today. Encryption protocols such as Transport Layer Security (TLS), Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), and Secure Shell (SSH) are now being used to hide cyber-attacks. Skillful criminals can successfully exploit vulnerabilities, push malware downloads, conduct command and control communications and steal data inside encrypted traffic while avoiding detection.

With this rise in attacks inside encrypted traffic, it is imperative for organizations to establish a security model that can decrypt and inspect encrypted traffic. This will help neutralize the danger of hidden threats. Otherwise, organizations are missing much of the value their security systems provide.

Safeguard your network from encrypted threats with SonicWall Deep Packet Inspection of TLS, SSL and SSH. These add-on security services are available on all SonicWall Next-Generation Firewall (NGFW) and Unified Threat Management (UTM) firewalls. DPI-SSL delivers deep protection against encrypted threats, and scalable SSL decryption and inspection performance without limitation. It leverages SonicWall's patented Reassembly-Free Deep Packet Inspection engine, a full-stack streaming inspection technology that scans a broad array of encryption protocols. These protocols include HTTPS, SMTPS, NNTPS, LDAPS, FTPS, Telnets, IMAPS, IRCS, and POPS. For high traffic or highly-regulated deployments, DPI-SSL can exclude trusted sources to optimize network performance, and conform to privacy and/or legal requirements.
